I was really just trying to get away from the diapers for a few hours....boy did that backfire. (ba da chhhhhhhh)
Gary was gone tonight for the general session, but oh, if only he could of heard some of the visitor comments...if only there were some sort of, I dunno, magical machine that could of jotted them all down and saved them in some kind of little box for future listening, he really would've gotten a kick out of 'em. But oh well, nothing like that exists or else our council would be foolish not to utilize such a thing.
Anyway, on to the meeting. Like I said I wasn't expecting much, I saw on the agenda that it was just about an antenna tower and a sign going up, but the latter item ended up dominating most of the meeting. A jewelry store in Richardson wants to put up a 15ft. high sign; it's burgundy with cursive writing in white and has a big diamond (does not rotate, but does light up at night) on top. Some might say this is a bit tacky. And to those people I would say, why yes Amir, I have to agree. Others might say, I could really use another sign myself outside of my insurance company and to them I would say, for serious, lay off ok, we get it, you sell insurance. And then there are those who might just like to make a motion, and half way through not even really. know. where. that. motion. has. gone. I loved Murph's use of the 'friendly amendment' to direct the motion back on track there after Ole' Macy misplaced it with his Rolaids.
In the end, I'm glad to be back home...in my shoe...if that says anything about how interesting the meeting was.
Oh, and for the record, Mitch did a great job of mayoral-izing this evening. Very mayoral. Heck, mayorific if I do say so myself!
